Talk Thru the Bible by Bruce Wilkinson and Kenneth Boa provides a valuable summary of every book of the Bible. Each chapter contains an introduction, notes on the author, date and setting, theme and purpose, key verses, Christ in that book (whether Old or New Testament), a survey of the book, and an outline of the book. The information is accurate, easy to understand, and complimented with useful charts and maps. The appendix at the back of the book features the visuals used in the Visual Survey of the Bible which is an excellent method for teaching the themes and timeline of Scripture. 523 pages, hardcover.
